I’ve only just started volunteering for the Transportation program at the BCRC in late 2018 and I’m so impressed with how it works. Our clients have so much stress in their lives and the last thing they need is to worry about how they’re going to get to the doctor’s office or to treatment. To be able to drive them in a beautiful, comfortable van makes it all the more rewarding. As the driver I am pleased and relieved that the van has such a great GPS system because I can get lost going around the block. Spending time with these clients is very emotional for me but it is also very rewarding. I share my story with them and they share their story with me and we’re there for each other. I feel privileged to give my time to such a worthy cause. - Lise Plourde

Transportation Program

Transportation should never be a barrier to treatment and no woman should travel this journey alone. Thanks to the generous donations in memory of Dr. Sandy Gatt, the Breast Cancer Resource Center offers a treatment transportation and companionship program for women with breast cancer. Our transportation program services patients and providers within a 20 mile radius of our Princeton location (with exceptions), including Capital Health ( Hopewell), Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (Hamilton), University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro, and the Breast Health Center in East Windsor.

If you are interested in a companion to accompany you to an appointment, we will match you with a breast cancer survivor volunteer to stay with you until you are transported home.

For more information or to schedule transportation, please contact Priscila Gramajo, Transportation and Treatment Support Coordinator at (609) 497-2100 x 303 or pgramajo@ywcaprinceton.org
